spent 30 + years there, very good place to work but for the last 2 years
Data Systems Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON29 November 2019
Canadian Wildlife Federation is a registered charity with a very large Raiser's Edge database. The charity is a little different from most in that it has a large base of smaller donors and uses monthly premium mailings to maintain budget targets.
